Thaw, wife of the man who Bhot Stanford White for her sake, sadly needed
the three days' grace brought by tho

indicated by her appearance when she
visited her husband yesterday. Mra.
Thaw looked hut a shadow of her former self, and those who have seen her
almost dally since the trial began asd
saw her yesterday, say the change was
almost ghastly. That she Is suffering
severely under the ordeal is plainly apparent, and some fears were expressed
yesterdav when her appearance was
noted, that she might not he able to

Grand Forks, Feb. 23.���Contractor
George Taylor has jusl been awarded
the contract for making the big log
boom al Smelter Lake for the Yale-Columbia Lumber company: Uie making

the building of a big log chute over the
smelter dam., ll la also understood

New   York-Chicago   Flyer   Leaves   Its
Track���Dead and Mining Number Fourteen.
Pittsburg, Feb. 23.���The Pennsylvania
railroad's fast train between New York
and Chicago was wrecked a few minutes
after midnight today rounding a sharp
curve at Black Diamond, Pa., about'7
miles vast of Johnstown. The train
was westbound and was running 35 minutes late when the accident occurred.
At C o'clock this morning it was reported 'hat between 35 and 40 people
were Injured, many seriously, and about
12 passengers were missing. They arc-
believed to have been buried under tbe
wreck. There were many prominent
persona .on the train. Among them
were the following who were seriously,
probably fatally, injured:
Frederick, A. Busse, postmaster of
Chicago, fatally injured, taken to a hospital at AJtooiia; Samuel F. Nixon, of
Nixon and Zimmerman, theatrical props ietora, fractured skull and fatally Injured .taken to Altoona; Felix lsmaii.
theatrical proprietor, Philadelphia, seriously Injured and in Altoona hospital;
J. W. Wood Wilson, Marlon Ind., seriously Injured; Lightner Henderson, Chicago, of flrmfof Purdy and Henderson,

New York; G. W. Wlgler, Chicago; Fox
Marshall, Chicago; S. 11. llrown, San
Francisco; John Kline, Chicago, and
W. O. O'Dennell, New York.
About 25 of the Injured passengers
were brought to the city on tbe first
section of the St. Louis Express, No
21, which arrived here at 5:03 o'clock.
Ambulances from the Alleghany general hospital met the train at the Union
Station and a majority of the seriously
injured were taken to that institution.
Many of the Injured were foreigners,
and most of these were given medical
attention ln the Union Station.
J. J. Keruan, of Chicago, In speaking to
the Associated Cess of the accident
said: "As near aa I can judge, we were
going at the rate of 50 miles an hour.
When the train struck the curve at Black
Diamond there was an awful jar. . The
engine aud smoker remained on the
track but all the Pullmans went over
a 60-foot embankment There are probably a number ot passengers beneath
the wreckage."
Johnstown, Pa., The Pennsylvania
Special, the fast 18-hour train on the
Pennsylvania railroad bstween New
York and Chicago, was wrecked at
Black Diamond, Pa., 7 miles east of
Johnstown, shortly after midnight.
From 40 to 50 persons were injured and
14 reported as missing. The train was
running about 50 miles an hour and was
35 minuea late. When rounding a
sharp curvo at Black Diamond the
whole train switched. The engine and
smoking car remained on the track but
the Pullman cars left the rails and
plunged over a 60-foot embankment. AH
aitempt3 to obtain Information from
railroad officials were met with rebuffs
al every hand, and at an early hour today, while It was reported that 54 passengers were on the train when It left
Altoona, only 40 were said to have been
accounted for. It ts believed that the
missing are dead ln the wreckage In
thc river, into which the train plunged
over the embankment, nenr the scene of
the Johnstown flood. At an early hour
this morning this city was practically
beselged by newspaper men on tholr
way to the wreck. Trains were despatched to reach the scono. It wan
necessary to take a 10-mile journey of
four hours nround tho mountains. From
the aeene It was.learned by telegraph
thnt ihe train waa late and the engineer
wns trying to make up lost time. The
wreck was caused by what Is termed
by railroads as "unavoidable accident."
The brake rigging of the first Pullman,
following the combination coach on the
train, dropped down and tore up the
right rnll n distance of 300 yards. The
engine and combination conch did not
leave thc rails, but the four Pullmans
following, plunged down over the embankment Inlo lhe rlvor 100 feet below, overturning when they reached the

Preston's Settlers Never
Another Fraud Exposed���Canadian
Immigration Agent is Booming
South Africa.
Ottawa, Feb. 22.���The auditor general has made the late discovery that
the North Atlantic Trading company
has been receiving (5 a bead on European emigrants without proper vouchers or evidence that the money was
due. Vouchers for money expended are
simply btatements made by agents of
the alleged company, certified by former
Deputy Minister Smart and Mr. Cohen,
ixith of whom are officers ot the contractor. The auditor further states that
claims have been made by the concern
for Immigrants from the United States
and generally that the accounting is Irregular and the liability doubtful.
These strictures are evidently the result of last year's investigation. As
the country has already paid $300,000
to the.-:e unknown friends of Mr. Pres.
tion and the department of tbe interior,
the vlgllan-ce is rather tardy. Undoubtedly nearly the whole of this money
was wasted and stolen, as we have a
statement ot Lord Strathcona that the
immigrant for whom the bonus was
paid would have come in any case, lf
they really have come.
Unfortunately the minister of agriculture, who has just taken a census
of the Northwest, has not been able to
find tbe people- Mr. Fisher admits a
shortage of 75,000, which is rather more
than the number paid the trading company to bring. The admission came reluctantly, but the figures show that the
real loss is double Mr. Fisher's estimate. We bad a certain population in
the Weat five years ago. . We had a
certain natural increase. We had a
large migration westward from the
older provinces. There Is an influx of
homesteaders from the United States.
Year after year the government has
boasled of the number ot settlers from
each of these classes. Now comes tbe
accounting, when all these boasts have
to bo marked down to bargain figures.
Mr. Fisher is not quite sure whether to
say that tbe immigrants for whom so
large a price has been paid have gone,
away again or never came at all. In
cither case the country has lost this
money except the part that may be
distributed among the silent partners.
Mr. Fielding haB amended bis revised
tariff by bringing in a list of 116
changes in the original schedule. All
these, except possibly four, which are
doubtful, are In the direction of higher
taxation. The tariff as it now stands
will undoubtedly take more money out
cf the people than the one which lt replaces. Whether it is more highly protective is a disputed question, but there
is no doubt that it represents higher
taxation. In general lt might be said
and proved that the tariff of today applied to quantities of articles and not
to their values Ib at least one-quarter
higher than lhat, of 1896.. The per
eentnge of duty on the value of goods
Is almost cxnctly the aame ns before the
change of government. Hut as Iho price
of goods averages some 25 per cent,
higher, the taxation has Increased accordingly. The Increased cost of goods,
and consequently Increased revenue,
would have given an economical administration a fine opportunity to reduce or abolish duties on goods not produced In this country, it suits the ministers better to maintain the scale of
duties and Increase tho expenditure.
When "hug the machine" Preston was
removed from the control of the Immigration work In Europe and promoted
to the position of trade commissioner
to China and Japnn It wus predicted
thnt we should soon hear ot some new
operation like the North Atlantic Trading company. . Mr. Preston has gone
faster than wan expectod. He stopped

Bhortly nfter the Canadian ogcnl at that
colony resigned. Next Mr. Prealon
wrote a Ions letfr to tlie London Er.
press contending that 8onth Africa offered a larger and letter field for Immigrants than Canada. This cxtraor-
dinnry deliverance from a Canadian
agent has excited great Indignation. The
common opinion Is that we shall next
hear of an ngencv something like the
North Atlantic Trading oompany, re-
clevlng a large bonus for sending eml-
craniB tn South Africa and that Mr.
Preston will be associated with It ln the
some way he was wltb the ooncern
which has received 1300,000 of Canadian money under the contract which
Mr. Preston made with unknown persons a few years ago.

Dutch Lifeboat Crew Has Rescued IS
ssf Crew of Berlin-t-Number of
Drowned is 128.
Hook of Holland, Feb. 23.���In the
early hours the three remaining survivors were taken off the wreck of the
Berlin by the same lifeboat crew which
has been doing splendid work during
tbe past 48 hours. ThiB brings the total
number of saved up to 15 out of the
143 who were on board the vessel.
The life savers watched the wreck all
night for a chance to get alongside but
they had to wait until low water at
about 1 a. in., when they put oft on
board the tug Wodan, which had a raft
in tow tor tbe use of the rescuers In
getting as near the wreck as possible.
Captain Sperling, of the lifeboat crew,
boarded the raft, which was allowed to
drilt alongside. the Berlin, and the
captain managed to clamber on board
by means of a line. He then lowered
lowered the helpless, half-dead women
one by one to the raft, whence they
were conveyed to the Wodan.
Captain Sperling, who rescued the last
survivors, is the master of a ship now
in this harbor. The captain with two
of his nephews volunteered to assist the
llfeboatmen. Sperling speaks modestly
of the incident. "The women were lying alive," he said."We could not abandon them without a further attempt to
get them aahore. As we neared the
wreck the seas were still high, washing
three or four feet over the breakwater.
Myself, my nephews and another man
jumped on the raft and took ber alongside the beacon light.. I succeeded in
reaching tbe breakwater to which I
moored the raft with a rope. From the
breakwater we climbed on board the
remnant of the Berlin and found three
women huddled under the hurricane
deck surrounded by 10 _r 12 corpses.
The women were In a pitiable plight,
act-earning and crying hysterically as
thoy clung tu us, beseeching ub not to
desert them. They were famished and
stiff with the cold, their clothes were
soaked with ley water and they were
unable to walk. The nurse, Fruulein
Plpler Insisted that her companions
should first he saved before Bhe was re-
moved from the wreck.
"So 1 carried Frauleln Thell to the
aide and fastened her Into a rope cradle
and lowered her upon tho raft. Frauleln
Winterberger was next taken off. She
was In pitiful distress, weeping for ber
husband and child, who were drowned.
Finally Frauleln Plpler, who was able
to walk with assistance, waa placed oh
the raft, which waB hauled alongside
the Wodan. The whole reacue took
only half an hour."
Twenty-two bodies were recovered
this afternoon from below the deck of
the Berlin.

The active membera of the Wholesalers' Association of Nelsou are now
ready, after careful preparation, to begin their struggle agalnat the railway
companies, especially the Canadian Pacific, for fair treatment In the matter
of freight rates.
E. K. Beeston has compiled for tbe
association a full list of all tbe rates to

opinion of the association, that Nelson
is discriminated agalnat unfairly and

the measures to be taken was not well

have been received, and there Is no
doubt that a vigorous and determined
fight will be made.
Although the Issue ls of great Import-
ance to all of Kootenay lt was decided
not to risk any delay by attempting to
enlist the support ot other cities.
It is contended that a reduction ot
freight rates such as may fairly be expected will mean more than 120,000 a

course, go to consumers In the reduction of retail prices that will become

or go straight to the railway commission and ask for an early date for a
hearing, at which thc association should
be represented by counsel, lt was also
a queatlou whether the support ot
other cities should be asked, and If so,
at what stage.
E. K. Beeston then read some ot tho
statistics h�� had acquired. After making every allowance for differences of
classification, they showed an average
increase of freight charges to Nelaon
over Vancouver of more than 50 per
cent., varying from 20 per cent to *
nearly 100.
Mr. Beeston estimated tbat Nelaon
merchants pay $150,000 a year ln freight
ratea. There wae, therefore, great
margin for reduction.
He had been struck by the great variety of classes and ratea. It seemed
that the transportation companies first
fixed the rales aa high as possible
and then made conce-sslon without any
plan or system la deference to apeclal
Discriminations ln favor of Winnipeg
and of Calgary were even more glaring
than those In favor of Vancouver.
The question of procedure was then
P. Lamont thought lt would be a
waste of time to approach the railway
companies on the subject.
I. G. Nolson moved, seconded by O.
Nunn, that, a case be prepared for presentation to the railway commission on
the subject of discrimination. The motion was carried unanimously.
The finance committee waa Instructed to make preparations accordingly.
The president t'len recommended
tbat counsel be retained and Instructed
at once.
The question of demurrage charges
was then raised, and lt waa agreed that
a case should be prepared on that subject also.
F. A. Starkey, O. Nunn, H. Byers .and
R. K. Beeston were appointed to consider tbe retaining of counsel.
It was decided not to seek any snp-
rort from other towns. The meeting
then adjourned.

The Drfly Canadian
Chrltt's    Strange    Thanknglving    that
MystcrieB Are  Hlddeiv���Services
Announced for Tomorrow.
Tomrrrow will be the second Sunday
In I^nt. It Is also the festival of St.
MatlliliiB. the apostle chosen as the
twelfth to take the place of Judas Is-
cnrlol, afler the latter's treachery and
siilcld'-. SI. Matthias was therefore the
flrsl aleoted bishop of tlie church.
Next Friday will lie SI. David's day.
the national festival of Wales named
from 81. David, one of lhe mythical
Sevan QhamplonB of Christendom. The
hlstiirlial David, however, was a learn-
esl and devout archbishop of the church.
In tho goBpel for SI. Matthias' day
are the words of Christ; "I thank
thee, O Father, Lord of Heaven and
Earlh, because thou hast hid these
things from tbe wise and prudent, and
haBt revealed them unto babes." The
expression Is of course metaphorical
bul its profound truth has been recognized by the wise and prudent many
To the scholarly and Intelligent
Greeks the gospel of the Incarnation.
Death and Resurrection of the Son of
God wbb a foollah tale. To the ignorant peasants of Asia and Italy and to
the barbarians of tlie north, their intellects unfettered by any learning and
without any but the vaguest preconceptions regarding the nature and purpose
or the Deity, the story was one of wonder and beauty and eminently believe-
It is so 111 other than religious
spheres. I_ord Hacon, the founder of
modern science said "If you wlBh to
enter the Kingdom of Nature, you must
enter as,a little child." It would almost seem that new truths are only re
reeled to thou who can lay aside all
notions borrowed from previous learning and give an open mind to tlie quest.

A citizen who Is a subscriber to the
Weekly Scotsman draws attention to
a strange negligence on tin* part of
the 20,000 club.
About six weeks ago a letter from a
resident of Scotland wns published In
The Daily News. Th_ writer asked fur
Information us to ranching conditions
around  Koolenay  Lake,
It was thought that one of the objects
i.f the 20,000 club's existence was to
supply such Information.
Evidently no reply went from N'olson.
But the last edition of the Scotsman to
hand contains a reply from Vancouver,
signed "Scully," who says Kootenay is
a poor place for ranching, Okanagan Is
much better, but a farm near Vancouver
is best of all.

auspices of th.: Union and the Harvard
Political club The address wus simply
an informal talk to the undergraduates
